You can not coach pure speed and Tevaun Smith has plenty of it. That speed helped him become the first player to score on Team USA in international competition back in February. With hopes of earning a division one scholarship he is bringing his talents to a Connecticut prep school for the '11 season.

After returning a kick 79 yards for a touchdown against a host of Class of 2011 super studs “The Canadian Missile” Tevaun Smith, a 6-foot-0, 185-pound wide receiver was awarded MVP honors by International Federation of American Football (IFAF).

The play in the game helped him draw the eye of college coaches, but it was a too little too late in his quest to earn a high profile D1 ride, but now he is bringing his game to the U.S. to help advance his career and gain some exposure.

“I (have) been working hard and schools (have) been interested,” Smith explained. “The World game gave me a bit of a buzz. I’ll be going to Kent School in Kent, Connecticut for the fall.”

After the game back in February Smith said that he was hearing from Syracuse and a few different MAC schools, but now the interest is starting to pick up even more.

“I went out to UCONN (Connecticut) and BC (Boston College) a few weeks ago,” Smith informed. “Syracuse, Temple, N.C. State are three schools that I’ve been talking on the phone with every once in a while and other smaller schools. I just have to go into training camp ready to go and perform.”

Smith went on to elaborate that it would be big for him to have a solid year on the field so that he can get a good opportunity to play on the next level.

“When I went to UCONN and BC, they really liked my size since I got bigger. They just want to see me play down at Kent (and get) more game film. I’m actually going to make a summer highlight of me doing drills and some field work to show my progress.”

“I also gotta show that I’m ready to play at the next level physically and mentally (I) have to be a student of the game.”
